Cadex Batteryshop™ software provides a simple, yet powerful PC interface to control and monitor the Cadex 7000 Series battery analyzers. Running on Windows 95, 98 and NT, the software enables untrained staff to test batteries as part of customer service. In addition, Cadex Batteryshop™ schedules periodic maintenance for fleet owners and assists battery manufacturers with quality control.

Cadex Batteryshop™ includes a database of over 2000 common battery models. Each battery listing contains the configuration code (C-code), the data that sets the analyzer to the correct parameters. A growing number of the battery listings also include matrices to perform Cadex Quicktest.

Point and click technology selects the battery and programs the Cadex 7000 Series analyzer. Scanning the battery’s model number, if a bar code label is available, also programs the analyzer. Cadex Batteryshop™ supports up to 120 Cadex 7000 Series battery analyzers. The test results can be displayed on screen in real time graphs and printed in customized reports.

Figure 18-5:  The Cadex SM1 battery charger.
This charger accommodates the widely used 202 format. Other batteries that fit the bay are the 2020, 1030, 1020, 210, 201, 36, 35, 30, 17 and 15. The Cadex SM1 charger supports ‘smart’ and ‘dumb’ batteries.

Cadex Smart Series battery chargers offer the consumer a continuous supply of freshly charged batteries. Conforming to the SMBus Level 3, the Cadex Smart Series chargers accommodate Li-ion, NiMH and NiCd batteries. The charge time is 2 to 3 hours. If faulty batteries are identified, the charge is halted. On compatible footprint, the chargers also accommodate ‘dumb’ batteries. Typical uses are mobile computing, biomedical and survey devices.

The Cadex SM1 charger is compact and charges one battery at a time. The Cadex SM2+ charger services two packs simultaneously and doubles as conditioner and quality control system. The charger reads the data stored in the SMBus battery, calculates the previous power delivered and compares the results with the target capacity setting. Adjustable to 60, 70 and 80 percent, the charger flags batteries that fall below the set capacity reading.

In addition to the features offered on the Cadex SM1 charger, this unit serves as charger, quality control system and battery conditioner. SMBus batteries with low state-of-health are identified. Conditioning and calibration occurs by pressing a button.

The Cadex UCC Series chargers feature interchangeable battery adapters. The Cadex MCC2 serves both as desktop and mobile charger.

Cadex Universal Conditioning Chargers (UCC) offer battery users an alternate source of chargers to those provided by the original equipment manufacturer (OEM). Available in one, two and six bay configurations, the chargers feature intelligent battery adapters. This concept allows easy adaptation to a variety of battery types without compromising charge performance.

The adapters allow service of different battery types in one unit. Reconfiguration to other battery types can be done in the field; the one and six-bay chargers are desktop and wall-mountable. The two-bay unit also serves as a vehicular charger built to military shock and vibration specifications.

Custom Battery Chargers — Cadex designs and manufactures a wide variety of custom chargers to serve public safety, law enforcement, emergency response, healthcare, mobile computing, broadcast and defence applications. Cadex covers all aspects of product development, from circuit design to power supply, from plastic housing to mechanical battery interface, to testing and manufacturing.

Custom Battery Packs Cadex completes the line of portable power source by offering specialty battery packs. To provide added safety, Cadex has the capability of designing specialty protection circuits for lithium ion chemistries and other battery systems.
